Washington state Sens. Ed Murray (D), Jeanne Kohl-Welles (D) and Adam Kline (D) have introducednew gun control legislation that goes far above and beyond what anyone would consider a simple sales ban.
Beretta’s 2010 96A1 9mm model would be banned under the Bill as it accepts a detachable magazine that holds 17 rounds.
The bill, S.B. 5737, proposes “banning the sale of assault weapons.” According to the legislation, an “assault weapon” is any semiautomatic pistol, pump-action [...]

What was the most deadly element involved in the mass murder of 12 people and the wounding of 58 others at the packed Aurora, Colo., theater premier of the newest “Batman” movie last summer?
Was it the AR-15-type weapon used by James Holmes? The shotgun he had with him? The handgun he used?
As it turns out it was probably a psychotropic medication he was most likely taking, a [...]

Looking for a better approach, biomedical engineer Donald Ingber of Harvard University and colleagues turned to nanoparticles. Modeled after platelets—cells that circulate in the blood and help stop bleeding by forming clots—the nanoparticles are less than 100 nm wide and made of synthetic polymers stuck together like a ball of wet sand. Like platelets, clumps of the particles flow freely in the blood and gravitate toward blocked vessels by sensing [...]
Recently, I’ve had the itch to buy a shotgun. It started after I read Creek’s post on how to build a survival shotgun. The itch only grew stronger after I became a homeowner (I kind of feel like Kevin McAllister). The shotgun is the perfect weapon for home defense and disaster prep. It’s powerful, reliable, and versatile. You can use it to fend off home intruders, hunt for food, [...]

North Carolina is one of the few states in the country with public records of who has a permit to carry a concealed firearm, so it provides a rare window into how such permits are handled once their holder’s criminal record proves them unfit to carry a hidden gun. The results are not pretty:
More than 2,400 permit holders were convicted of felonies or misdemeanors, [...]

This is what i was afraid of. I don’t think this is healthy growth. This is a result of the trade imbalances inside of the euro-zone. Because countries can’t balance their trade via exchange rate movements, wages will be moving instead. Many economists are predicting deflation for the deficit countries with wages falling up to 30% in Greece. Wages are sticky to the down side, [...]
